    Default I want to run away!!!

    My life, in general, is going quite well... I have an SO who I adore and who adores me, we have a house, I have a job that I do well at and requires little in the way of routine. Somewhere in the back of my head there's a voice that keeps saying "run away!"

    I've felt the compulsion to run and keep on running since I was a kid... I used to run away from school when younger and escape for weekends while in college without telling anyone where I was going... I even got a good excuse and fled the country once for a few months. Something about perpetual motion and meeting people who don't know me and having that sort of blank slate is thrilling

    Problem is though, I LIKE the life that I have... it's kind of a split there- the compulsion to run and the enjoyment of what I have. I KNOW that I can't have it both ways and I've already thrown my lot in with one of the options. Anyone else have this split going on? what do you do about it?

    Sure, take me with you wherever you go.

    Besides you don't have to run away and never come back.

    the problem is that I WANT to be a good, stable pillar of the community type but I doubt that I have it in me... I'm kind of NATURALLY bad

    I voted that I'd like to run away, but it is very much circumstance-driven at the moment. Things have just been a bit sucky lately and that makes me wonder if I really want to be where I am. It's not a feeling where I desperately want to run, though. I think last time I felt that way was several years ago after a bad breakup (and I actually did leave that city a year later, and wish I'd left sooner!!), and before that it was when I was pretty tired of the town I grew up in.

    I'm INFJ, I doubt running is too much of an issue for me I'm more like, put down roots somewhere and schedule in some good travelling.

    after breaking up from a 3.5 year relationship that involved an engagement I actually picked up and moved to a different city over an hour and a half away where I didn't know anyone and didn't have a job yet... different scenery and I was still good at finding the same old types of problems for a while

    something liberating about nobody knowing my past though

    and @ people planning travel... my ISTJ is delighting in carefully plotting our mini-vacation that I suggested on a whim in a few weeks!

    I think it's the Se version of P that does this. I could use some of it. Perhaps we could do a trade. Here's a song to get you started.

    Are you running away from something specific? Fear of ... ?
